This is great. ಠ_ಠ

It’s being reported that president elect Donald Trump has picked Rep. Mike Pompeo to head up the CIA for him.

“President-elect Donald J. Trump has selected Representative Mike Pompeo, a hawkish Republican from Kansas and a former Army officer, to lead the Central Intelligence Agency, according to officials close to Mr. Trump’s transition team.” New York Times

Pompeo is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Koch Industries. They contributed to his first campaign and have done so ever since and his previous business was owned in part by Koch.

“When Mike Pompeo needed funding for a Wichita aerospace company, one of the places he and his partners went for help was Koch Industries, a hometown firm that is among the world’s largest privately held corporations.

Last year, Pompeo turned to Koch for help again — this time to support his successful campaign for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Pompeo received $80,000 in donations from Koch and its employees, making him the top recipient of Koch-related money in the 2010 elections.” Washington Post, 2011

The company they were mentioned was Sentry International. Like Haliburton, they service the oil industry. Here is a list of companies they do business with. Lots of companies with ties to lots of countries where the CIA needs to make sure they keep them safe for our “national interests”

“Pompeo opposes closing Guantánamo Bay detention camp

“Pompeo supports the National Security Agency‘s surveillance programs, characterizing the agency’s efforts as “good and important work.”

“Pompeo opposes requiring food suppliers to label food made with Genetically modified organisms as GMO”

Trump-change is starting too sound an awful lot like Obama’s “CHANGE” is it not?

Please help keep AE up and running if you can.

Thank you all so much
